Raad Calls March 14 Officials ‘Filthy,’ Hints Cabinet Formation Waiting for Regional Developments
Hizbullah MP Mohammed Raad said Sunday that cables released by WikiLeaks on the alleged conspiracy of March 14 officials against the resistance would further unveil their “filthiness.”
During the opening of a conferences hall and a public library in the town of Nabatiyeh in the south, Raad said: “The upcoming leaks would probably show more filthiness from them.”
Al-Akhbar daily has been lately unveiling what it says are WikiLeaks cables exposing secret talks between anti-Hizbullah officials and U.S. diplomats.
The lawmaker also described the officials mentioned in the leaks as “midgets.”
“If the resistance becomes strong, it wouldn’t be at all like Rambo because it has a cultural project and political, social and civilized awareness,” he said.
Raad was referring to Caretaker Minister Butros Harb who has allegedly said that the 2006 war could turn Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah into a "Rambo figure in the region."
The lawmaker said the new Lebanese government should include people who have an “independence and resistance vision” for the country.
Raad hinted that the cabinet formation process was awaiting developments in the region.
The government “should meet the expectations of the Lebanese who are keen on being in harmony with developments in the region,” he stressed.
“It is not right for us to be on a certain track and people in the region to take the opposite direction,” Raad added.
